the national argument about government, president obama won a great victory for the forces of liberalism in this country. right now the first lady is on their way back to the white house, knowing it's their home for the next four years. we may see them arrive later this hour. president obama now knows that the american people have voted for his vision, a vision where everyone gets a fair shot. last night, the american people said they stand with the president on his vision of a liberal democratic governance, on taxes, on medicare, on health care. this was an election about the fundamentals of our nation, about what kind of people we want to be. >> that's why elections matter. it's not small. it's big. it's important. democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and it necessarily stirs passions, stirs of controversy. that won't change after tonight. and it shouldn't. these arguments we have are a mark of our liberty. we can never forget that as we speak, and a chance to argue about the issues that matter, the chance to cast their ballots like we did today. across the kwour

. political parties have to adapt to that. obama did. he did it in '08 and he absolutely did in this election. and guess what? 69%, 70% hispanics with him. we are barely getting on to the table. so we have to accept our voters as we find them. our activists have to be a part of that to help get that message out there. i think we'll see some differences. but saying to marco rubio or chris christie, i think is a mistake. >> you talk about reshaping. a lot of people think the attempt of reshaping mitt romney is what cost him this election. >> i said from day one, the governor of massachusetts should have been the guy running for president of united states. >> all right guys, stick with us. coming up on "way too early," elizabeth warren gets a win over scott brown in that closely watched massachusetts race. we'll look at how all the big races play out across the country, what it means for the coming fiscal fight on capitol hill. also ahead, bill karins going to join us from down democracy plaza with an update on this radar map a nor'easter headed straight for some of the same areas wiped out by l

the wind at his back, president obama now looks ahead to a second term. calling himself more determined and inspired to face the challenges ahead. the president and his massive campaign machine captured a second term with a strong electoral advantage over challenger mitt romney. 303 electoral votes. and a narrow victory. in florida the race there still too close to call. in az acceptance speech in chicago, he mentioned the deep rifts and cracks that line his road back to the white house. >> i believe we can seize this future together. because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions. and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. >> in the end as wildly predicted, ohio was what put the president over that all important 270 electoral vote threshold. the workers pulling obama in the state that was the linchpin to his re-election campaign. ohio and the two other states that together made up the unbreakable o

. just after we began to get those state by state results. some that hit me. obama, the champ, was not just hold higz own, he was winning. then the long rounds where he kept it up. i saw this happen last night because i never saw it coming. i saw romney's big win in the first debate. i saw the president's sterling bipartisan work on tropical storm sandy. i never saw what came about last night, this powerful swing of support to the president. not just him but his party in senate races across the country. our question tonight, what happened? but i can't begin our usual political discussion tonight without a strong sad personal note. i was on last night for ten hours straight from 5:00 in the evening till 3:00 in the morning. a few minutes to 3:00 i said something terrible. i said that i was glad about the coming of tropical storm sandy because of its impact on this national campaign. it was a terrible thing to say, period. i can say it was because i was tired but the fact is i wasn't thinking of the horrible mess this storm has made of people's lives up here in new york and else

the bailout. 75% of those people said they voted for president obama. i think it was very, very large. even the republican analysts looking at the vote today, one of the things they have pointed to are some of the smaller counties, particularly up in the northwest part of the state. you know, where romney first raised this issue about ten days out from the election about whether jeep was moving to china. those areas, they underperformed compared to what they had done in 2004 when they won, particularly by doing very, very well again in some of the smaller counties around the state and the ones where they didn't do as well, counties with a significant auto industry presence. >> right. i'm curious, joe, in the last hours or days i should say that ad of the romney team saying jobs shipped to china, the president along the stump made a comment about revenge and some people including romney and ryan tried to say to people, this is about the love of country, not about revenge, but i couldn't help but to wnder about the people, the men and women in the state who have a job as a result of the auto

government. what do you mean? >> i mean that when president obama took office, we had just experienced, if we can think back on it, a profound failure of both government and elite institutions from iraq, foreign policy to finances to the response to hurricane katrina. what president obama did when he came into office was strongly and unapologetically assert the government's role in dealing with our problems. in a wide array of markets. the insurance market, the car market, small businesses, tax reform. he did that at great personal, political risk. and what he got back in return was, a very strong attack on the notion that we're in this together and that government has a role to play. first in the grass roots of the tea party on the ground and then in the air in what you documented, martin, and what the audience knows, one of the most well-funded attacks in the history of american politics. what i think happened last night is more than just a re-election of barack obama as a man that people trust to lead our country, which is, i think, good. i think something deeper happened. i think there wa

. it looks like president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is said and done. but let's go and show you how the president did it, if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all margins. this wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's what the county map looks like right now. i'll go to 2008. if anything, he did better in coal country as you can see. and you see the blue goes away over here. romney did what he had to do. he ran up margins here. the problem is right here. it was margins in cuyahoga plus underperforming with white working class men in the auto belt here. these two areas also swing. and those swing areas didn't go for mitt romney as well either. he kept it closer. he ran up the margins in his home turf, but he couldn't cut in the swing areas. one of the interesting things about the swing counties, i want to run through this here. hamilton county stayed with the president. jefferson county stayed with the president. washo county, stayed with t
